Initial reports of a plane crash at Indianapolis Executive Airport, turned out false, but there was an incident Tuesday involving a passenger plane.
At 7:42 p.m., Tuesday, the Boone County Communications Center received a 911 call of a possible plane crash at the airport, 11329 E. Ind. 32, Zionsville. First responders on the scene verified that there was not an actual crash, and after further investigation, the pilot indicated that the aircraft's right brake had locked up upon landing such that the aircraft was forced to the side of the runway.
Records indicate that the aircraft belonged to Farrell 5 LLC of Defiance, Ohio. The aircraft departed Groton-New London, Conn., at 5:07 p.m., and was scheduled to arrive at Indianapolis Executive Airport at 7:38 p.m.
Aboard the aircraft were seven passengers and two crew, and there were no injuries. The Federal Aviation Administration has been contacted, and upon relocation of the aircraft, the runway will reopen.
Responders included Boone County Sherriff's Office, Zionsville Police and Fire Departments, Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, and Hamilton County Airport Authority.
